A concrete house by Whispering Smith architects

Let’s talk concrete! One of my personal favourite materials and to be found in almost every room of my own home. I love the raw feeling of concrete but could never live in a complete concrete box, I always need a good dose of white and wood combined with it to soften the concrete. This […]

Manifest Cabinet | Studio apartment visit | 3 days of design

How did you like the pictures of the building in my former post Købmandsgården tour with Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen are you up for more raw and unpolished? Last year I showed you the minimalistic Frama studio apartment already, this year the apartment formed the backdrop of the Frama collection and was it the Manifest Cabinet that caught my eye! The […]

A raw and minimalistic apartment | Frama Studio apartment

Visiting the Frama Studio apartment was one of the most beautiful things I had seen in a long time, some might call it a bit to much and unfinished, to easy or something they have seen before elsewhere, but haven’t we seen almost everything before? For me as a lover of the raw, the different… […]

Nærvær by Norm Architects | A new restaurant in Copenhagen

Outdoor collection by Alessandro Isola

Functional and modular pieces of furniture that can be arranged to suit the user, a contrasting combination of rough timber and smooth […]

A restaurant in a former factory | Mama Kelly – The Hague

I had to think about my dad who used to smoke Caballero cigarettes and the small brown package with wood print and cowboy on it when visiting Mama Kelly this last summer. I was asked by Bolia to write some blogposts about The Hague, like I did for Amsterdam, when Bolia opened the new store […]

An 80s style industrial warehouse

What an amazing space I found through the blog of my friend Allan of Bungalow5 who is using this home as one of the main inspirations for the new home he is about to move in. The space and high ceiling also remind me a of the home of Paola Navone in Milan, which is an amazing industrial home. The […]

Embracing Ageing | Birgitta de Vos at Raw Materials

Inspired by the Japanese Mono-ha and Wabi Sabi, and as a counter reaction to a cultural and social environment of more and more visual and digital daily input, Birgitta de Vos made these weathered, worn and rusted works. I couldn’t think of a better store to exhibit her work then Raw Materials in at the […]

I would love you to have a look at this raw and industrial apartment in Copenhagen, the home of Inge-Hanne Draw Anderson and her husband who bought this apartment in the modernized shipyard building Torpedohallen at Holmen 6 years ago.
